Powersat by Ben Bova

This was our book for the month and it was really poorly written. The science was bad, odd phrases were used repeatedly, unlikely things happen.

The Astro Corporation is building a power satellite in space, but they have people who are against them -- some actually with principles, but most because they want to make the money. There's a lot of intrigue, a Texas governor clearly based on Bush Jr., a fair amount of sex, and, in the library, a lot of ridicule.
